and create 8 million manufacturing jobs. i want to control our energy. after 30 years of inaction, we have raised fuel standards by the middle of the next decade so your cars and trucks will be going twice as far on a gallon of gas. we have doubled the amount of renewable energy that we generate from sources like wind and solar. thousands of americans have jobs building wind turbines and long- lasting batteries. the united states today is less dependent on foreign oil than any time in the last two decades. now you have a choice between a plan that reverses this progress or one that builds on it. my opponent said he refuses to close a loophole that gives big oil companies $4 billion in tax subsidies every year. we have a better plan that we keep investing in wind, solar, and clean coal, where construction workers are retrofitting homes so they waste less energy, and we can develop a supply of natural gas that creates hundreds of thousands of jobs and we can cut our oil imports in half by 2020. that will be good for our economy, for colorado, and that will be good for america, and that is wh

desire to vote, do so. energy needs to be put into social movements in which we demand what we want in our own lives rather than putting our faith in elected officials and hoping they do what we want. specifically, for a contemporary example, the students in quebec were on strike for months when there was a tuition hike that they said was unacceptable. they said, we will not pay. we will be in the streets until you get rid of this ridiculous hike. they tried to make protests illegal. the tuition hike did not go through and the law was repealed. >> would you please ask a specific question? >> i know. this is terrible. my question would be, what do you see as the value of movements for political change? >> thank you for that example. we realize that the reason i was asked to testify before members of congress was because of my work on such a social movement. there were students on our campus who organized to address this concern with our insurance. they saw that georgetown was providing an subsidizing contraception on insurance for their employees, but not for students, even students
